About Book

Find the killer, restore your father’s legacy, save the world…all before finals week.
Germany, 1945. Nazi leaders scramble to hide stolen wealth from Allied invaders. Among them are members of the German Christian Church, the spiritual arm of Hitler’s empire. When an American soldier stumbles upon the Church’s loot, he learns of the master plan to resurrect the Nazi regime—when the time is right.
But the solider dies in action just days before war’s end. The secret, lost.
Until now.

Virginia, Present Day. A Senator’s home has been consumed by inferno. The nation mourns the loss of a beloved statesman until painful questions are asked. Was it arson? Or the instrument of suicide?
The late Senator’s son Max Meyers refuses to believe the FBI’s ruling. Joined by his astute professor Charles Kensington and renegade law enforcer James Russell, Max forsakes posh campus life to learn the truth. A forgotten letter sent by Max’s great-grandfather from the carnage of World War II provides a clue, lighting a trail of decades-old conspiracy across Europe.
A lost faction of Nazi religious leaders has risen from the ashes of a failed Reich, prepared to revive a government of tyrants built to last a thousand years. To keep the promise of justice made to his late father, Max must prevent the conspirators from unleashing vengeance on an unsuspecting continent.
Is modern Europe’s fate sealed?
The first installment of the Max Meyers Adventure series, THE PHOENIX REICH is a fast-paced thriller set against the backdrop of World War II mysteries and the reality of modern-day Nazi conspiracies.

My Thoughts

What a tragic and sad way for a story to start. Oh my heart went out to Max. To lose your father, step mother and step sister all at once, in such a horrible way. So very heartbreaking. But Max seems to take it in stride or does he?

A dead senator, his wife and step daughter gone in a blink of an eye. Max, the remaining son is left to try and pick up the pieces and prove the FBI's findings of murder-suicide false. He believes his family has been framed. He turns to his teacher and long time family friend Kensington who in turn contacts Jack Russell (yep that man who walked naked through the park in The Compass). And so the adventure begins.

The hunt is on to find out why his family was killed and frame. Missing letters may hold the clue, what was in them, does a possible sole survivor from a long ago war hold the key? One really angry FBI agent, who I personally think either is holding a grudge or has a secret. An American with an attitude, an Englishmen who likes it clean and by the book and a college student bent on clearing his fathers name. Can they find the WWII Corporal, can they put the pieces together? Can Max clear his family's name?

The Phoenix Reich is just the starter to Max's Adventures but wow what a start like a BANG from the 4th of July Fireworks this book is out of the gates and running - sit back and enjoy this ride because if the rest of Max's adventures are like this book we are in for one amazing roller coaster of a ride - sure to beat anything at Busch Gardens.
